I am so, so disappointed there isn't more posting on in here.
Did Nets leaving Newark for Brooklyn really make their fandom for the Nets so easy to leave behind?
I've been a since real Nets fan since 1970.
Nets sold the most exciting player to ever step on a professional basketball court, then moved to New Jersey (NEW JERSEY), and I remained a Nets' fan.
I was a Manhattanite at the time, and for 20-plus years after.
And I've stated this before, and will re-state it now, seeing how much support the Nets get as a team, and not a location, it is sad that the Nets were allowed to join the NBA, and the Kentucky Colonels weren't.
True Net fans, Man up, Gird your loins, and put your heart into this team, or you will be disrespecting the Nets franchise, and the entire ABA, which I'm sure most of you know next to nothing about. The Nets are the reason the NBA/ABA merger happened. More specifically, Julius Erving was why it happened, but Roy Boe was not a smart enough businessman to take the opportunity that was shoved in his face.
